Hi Gene,

The link above takes you to Coral Reef Watch's "Virtual Stations" page 
for the GBR that use satellite data (note, in particular, Lizard Reef 
that has been in the news).

SST time-series is the upper solid purple curve (anything above the 
solid cyan line would show expected bleaching conditions based on 
established conditions).

Cheers (?),
